https://www.bet.com/celebrities/news/2020/09/01/tyler-perry-billionaire.html?cid=The+Game+on+BET__FBPAGE___3645968360&linkId=98628852&fbclid=IwAR1quXfbW9gUYZJ9Fnd2y_mbZv1XSt5RYrtWhi-f-7XrDcgKu1PdJbYBzgw


Tyler Perry is officially a member of the Three Comma Club.

According to Forbes, the actor and entrepreneur is now worth a billion dollars. The publication arrived at the conclusion by breaking down Perry’s assets, including $300 million in cash and investments, a content library worth $320 million, his sprawling Atlanta studio and multiple personal properties.The mogul joins a group of Black billionaires that includes Robert F. Smith, Michael Jordan, Oprah Winfrey, David Stewart, Jay-Z and perhaps Kanye West.

Yes, it's an obscene amount of money.
But are his accomplishments that got him to that point not worth of celebration?

There is so much exploitation that leads to the accumulation of that kind of wealth. He's also strongly anti-union and has been accused of treating workers poorly. I'm good on him and all billionaires.

4 Spike Lee's.

Serious question - NO SNARK or SHADE meant:
What has he done that's good? I'll watch it if there's something really good.

You aren’t his audience.

It’s not about the quality of his work, for me it’s the quantity and the amount of jobs he’s given to Black actors that’s amazing.

I used to be a huge critic but I get it now. His speech on Black AF was awesome.

I was asking about his work. You seemed to reply about his business.

So I'll repeat: What does he have that's GOOD? I'd like to watch it.

Or is all not really good??

But it's that he also does good things with the money and influence he's gained? (That's okay in my book too.)

Diary of a Mad Black Woman wasn't bad either. Or the one with Alfre Woodard and ole girl from Misery....Kathy Bates. I can't think of the name of it.

I don't consider myself his *target* market (young, Black woman...maybe I am lol). Never been to one of the plays, and I ignore most of the Madea stuff but his personal story should be applauded and he keeps a lot of people working. The content might suck, but I cannot knock how many folks he employs, his studio here in Atlanta (in a very Black neighborhood), or his charitable work.

if we have billionaires then its a good thing that more of them are POC than not.

i dont really know much about tyler perry besides knowing he makes a ton of popular movies. never seen one of them.

big accomplishment and has plenty of meaning that should be celebrated.


i would prefer if more people werent scraping at the bottom just to live but i wouldnt start my complaint with tyler perry being a billionaire. im a bit surprised he wasnt one yet.

thats just my opinion, i dont know how other anti-billionaires feel about it lol

In response to Reply # 8


  

          

how is it a swindle?

I dont think he makes good work

but it resonates with people enough to make people want to exchange their dollars to be entertained by his products

he started on the (fuck i hate this term) chitlin' circuit where he grew his base from the bottom

so...where is the swindle?


I don't like his output but I totally get why/how people fuck with him.

That’s the swindle.




He’s filched his riches by infantilizing the artistic tastes of woebegone COGIC congregations and their family members across the nation.

That being said as long as we have adam sandlers and judd apatows saturating entertainment with their meh movies and meh friends, i dont have energy to clown tyler perry and his work no matter how regressive i find it.

Like I told Handle... if you watched Black AF he put it all out there.

“I don’t give a fuck about white acceptance, I make movies for my audience”

he knows who his audience is and he gives them exactly what they want.
